Some other good information regarding Home Insurance deductibles applied to named-storms, hurricanes, and wind/hail deductibles.
 
Insurers are only allowed to apply one hurricane deductible per calendar year on admitted residential property insurance policies, regardless of how many hurricane losses the policyholder has during the calendar year.
 
Please note that this statute does not apply to non-admitted insurers or commercial property insurance policies.
 
LSA-R.S. 22:1337
 
§ 1337. Homeowners' insurance deductibles applied to named-storms, hurricanes, and wind and hail deductibles
 
A. For purposes of this Section, the following definitions shall apply:
 
(1) “Hurricane” means a storm system that has been declared a hurricane by the National Hurricane Center of the National Weather Service.
 
(2) “Named storm” means a storm system that has been declared a named storm by the National Hurricane Center of the National Weather Service.
 
(3) “Separate deductible” means a deductible that applies to damage incurred during a specified weather event and may be expressed as a percentage of the insured value of the property or as a specific dollar amount and includes hurricane, named-storm, and wind and hail deductibles.
 
B. For all homeowners' insurance policies or other policies insuring a one- or two-family owner occupied premises for fire and allied lines, issued or renewed by authorized insurers on or after January 1, 2010, any separate deductible that applies in place of any other deductible to loss or damage resulting from a named storm or hurricane shall be applied on an annual basis to all named-storm or hurricane losses that are subject to the separate deductible during the calendar year.
 
C. If an insured incurs named-storm or hurricane losses from more than one named storm or hurricane during a calendar year that are subject to the separate deductible referred to in Subsection B of this Section, the insurer may apply a deductible to the succeeding named storms or hurricanes that is equal to the remaining amount of the separate deductible, or the amount of the deductible that applies to all perils other than a named storm or hurricane, whichever is greater. Insurers may require policyholders to maintain receipts or other records of such losses in order to apply such losses to subsequent named-storm or hurricane claims.
